Abstract

Sex and its expression through sexuality are fundamental aspects of being human and the sense of what it is to be human changes over time thus we have to acknowledge the historical changeability of sexuality. Sexuality as a highly contested subject has undergone many developments over the last one hundred years, from repressive Victorian times through to a globalised era where sex is presented to us regularly in popular culture. An understanding of sexuality involves sex and desire, embracing ‘the realm of the psyche and the material world’ (Bristow 1997, 1).
